TD Bank has reached its carbon-neutral goal by building greener buildings, lowering its energy consumption and making a significant investment in renewable energy from sources like wind, solar and low-impact hydro power, according to the company.
TD Bank has purchased a block of wind energy large enough to power its network of 2,600 ATMs. TD Bank has also purchased 31,000 metric tons of carbon-offset credits to eliminate its remaining emissions.
TD Bank also says it will develop LEED-certified stores. The bank expects to open its first green prototype store in Queens Village, N.Y., this spring. The bank expects to open about five to 10 new green stores this year. TD Bank's new 3,800 square-foot prototype stores will reduce energy consumption by 50% compared to previous designs, according to TD Bank.
